Bill Zivic adding detail to one of his works

William T. Zivic
Bill ZivicBill Zivic, artist, soldier, merchant seaman, iron miner, lawman, and world traveler, is a man captivated by the beauty and romance of the American West.

Born in Ironwood, Michigan in 1930, the son of an iron miner, Mr. Zivic spent part of his early working life in the mile-deep iron mines of his native state. His travels have taken him around the world, to the Orient, to the battlefields of Korea, to Europe and Africa. In 1960, he brought his family west and, inspired by its vast beauty and history, began capturing the West he found on canvas and in bronze sculpture. As a self-taught artist, his lessons came under the big sky, in the mountains, on the open range, among the native plants and animals, from ranch hands and seasoned cowboys. Today Mr. Zivic's subject matter is still the landscape of the American West, its fauna and flora, its history and lore.
